The project

An exhibition in partnership with the Carmignac Foundation is one of the day’s highlights.

The role of the ENGIE Foundation

The Foundation supported the event in 2018; on this occasion, Ségolène Royal in her capacity as French Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic Poles and Secretary of State Sébastien Lecornu were key guests at the launch, before an audience made up of elected officials and members of the public.

In 2019, the Foundation will be offering other means of intervention or involvement to this association by promoting dialogue with its partners (exhibition at the Musée de l’Homme, involvement of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, mutual activity with Surfrider, etc.)
